Back to War
In the large room has been erected the memorial, which is a large brass plaque, on oak, bearing the names of the following, who made the great sacrifice:--
Frank Atkins, J.H. Baldwin, H. Beaton, Frank Down, G.R. Fox, F. Gorey, H. Gorey, T. Hankins, J.A. Oldridge, F. Plume, A.H. Sargent, W.P Scott, G.H.G. Tomsett, W.G. Tye.
Above the names is the Foresters' crest, a stag's head and crown, and the following:--
"A.O.F., Court Wellington, No. 3449. -- In honoured memory of our brothers who laid down their lives in the Great war, 1914-1918." Under the names is "Lest we forget."
The lettering on the board is black and red, and there is a scroll border. The memorial is excellent in design and workmanship, and the members of Court Wellington are very pleased with it as a tangible expression of their feelings towards their late members, and the desire to perpetuate their memory. The cost of the memorial, the work of Messrs. Hammond and Hussey, Croydon, has been met by subscriptions by the members.
